Why only reduce and not completely block the green light?

When it comes to protecting your eyes from the harsh glare of computer screens, many are turning to yellow tinted lenses for relief. But why is it crucial to only reduce and not completely block the green light when working on a computer?

The Essential Guide to Yellow Tinted Lenses: Balancing Eye Protection and Color Accuracy

In our digitally-driven world, screens are everywhere. From smartphones and laptops to tablets and televisions, we're constantly exposed to the bright lights of modern displays. However, while these screens keep us connected and productive, they also emit excessive green and blue light, which can strain our eyes and potentially harm our vision over time. This is where yellow tinted lenses come into play. At our e-shop, we specialize in glasses with yellow tinted lenses designed to protect your eyes from harmful green and blue light while preserving the natural colors of the screen.

Why Green and Blue Light Can Be Harmful

Displays emit various wavelengths of light, but the green and blue light spectrums are particularly intense. Scientific studies have shown that prolonged exposure to these lights can lead to digital eye strain, headaches, and even long-term vision issues. A study published in the journal Ophthalmic and Physiological Optics found that high-energy visible (HEV) light, which includes green and blue light, can penetrate the retina and cause oxidative stress, potentially leading to photoreceptor damage.

The Importance of Not Completely Blocking Green Light

While it might seem logical to block green light entirely, doing so can have unintended consequences. Green light is essential for maintaining color balance and visual acuity. According to research from the Journal of the American Academy of Optometry, green light plays a crucial role in our perception of brightness and contrast, which are fundamental to seeing details and distinguishing colors accurately. If we completely eliminate green light, the colors on your screen would appear distorted, affecting your ability to work, especially in fields that require precise color differentiation like graphic design, photography, and video editing.

The Solution: Yellow Tinted Lenses

Yellow tinted lenses offer a balanced approach. They reduce the intensity of green light, alleviating eye strain and discomfort, without compromising the accuracy of the colors on your screen. Additionally, our glasses are designed to block more than 80% of artificial blue light, which is another major contributor to digital eye strain. Here’s why our yellow tinted glasses are the perfect solution:

  1. Reduces Eye Strain: A study by the Vision Council found that nearly 60% of Americans experience digital eye strain due to prolonged screen time. By filtering out excessive green and blue light, these lenses help to reduce eye fatigue and the risk of long-term damage.

  2. Preserves Color Accuracy: Unlike lenses that block green light entirely, our yellow tinted lenses ensure that you still see a full spectrum of colors. This is crucial for anyone who needs accurate color representation in their work.

  3. Blocks Harmful Blue Light: Our lenses block more than 80% of artificial blue light, reducing its harmful impact on your eyes and improving overall visual comfort.

  4. Enhances Visual Comfort: Research from Acta Ophthalmologica indicates that yellow tinted lenses can improve contrast and sharpness, making it easier to focus on your screen for extended periods.

How Our Glasses Work

Our glasses are equipped with specially designed lenses that selectively filter out a portion of the green light and more than 80% of the blue light emitted by screens. This selective filtering process ensures that the harmful effects of these lights are mitigated while the beneficial aspects of natural light and color fidelity are maintained.

Who Can Benefit from Yellow Tinted Lenses?

  • Professionals in Visual Arts: Graphic designers, photographers, and video editors who need precise color representation.
  • Office Workers: Anyone who spends long hours in front of a computer screen.
  • Gamers: Those who play for extended periods and need to maintain visual comfort and color accuracy.
